The free to attend family event is set to return on the day of King Charles III Coronation with a royal theme to match.

Picnic in the Park has been a great success over the years and has been brought forward this year, to be held on bank holiday weekend, Saturday 6 May from 10am until 3pm in Astley Park.

The event will keep its classic fun filled entertainment throughout the day whilst televising King Charles III Coronation live on a large screen. Visitors are encouraged to dress in red, white, and blue to celebrate the theme.

Astley Park will be filled by family and friends celebrating this memorable day with live entertainment from Louby Lou, Punch and Judy, live music and our special guest, Sonic the Hedgehog™ who will be making personal appearances at intervals throughout the day.

Get into the royal theme with a crown making workshop hosted by Foster Careline and take photos on our very own royal throne. St Catherine’s Hospice will be hosting fun activities on the day.

Face painting will be available along with inflatable bouncy castles, soft play truck, bungee trampolines and fairground rides for visitors to enjoy (small charges may apply for some activities).

We encourage visitors to bring a picnic and join in the activities but don’t worry if you don’t have time to make one, as other refreshments will be available including ice cream vans, Perk Me Up Coffee, Bees Country Kitchen, Candy Floss and Popcorn. Other refreshments will be available from Café Ambio and Barrica in the Park.

Astley Hall will still be open for visitors from 10am until 4pm so why not pay a visit to see some of our fabulous exhibitions with even more history on this special day.
